. the obama administration implemented a managed bankruptcy of the automakers. >> they both had the same concept. mitt romney and president obama had the same concept of a managed bankruptcy. >> different concepts. mitt romney didn't want a bunch of government money and taxpayer money going in and guaranteeing these automaker, but when you hear the words let it go bankrupt he wanted it out of business. he said he did not want them and he did not want the taxpayer involved the way they were. we decided this is misleading, the statement. the op ed was titled let detroit go bankrupt by "the new york times," romney wanted a managed bankruptcy overall and ultimately there was a managed bankruptcy. look, there are different views on how to fix the auto industry, but mitt romney did want to fix the auto industry. >> both of the sides had views about a managed bankruptcy, but don't believe the had headline that was attributed to mitt romney. >> it ultimately worked, by the way. >> you can make a fair argument, without question. >> get some sleep tonight. for those of you who missed it and you di
belong to. now, via politico, the obama administration, the campaign has come out before against that campaign on the trail that said the video that was played was actually produced by the city of charlotte, and it has nothing to do with the obama for america campaign or the democratic national committee. that came from the steph charlotte, regardless of what you feel. the speech continues, as does our coverage. we have a lot more ahead. "newsroom international" is getting ready
with a bailout check. and the obama administration ultimately had a managed bankruptcy of the automakers so the romney op-ed titled "let detroit go bankrupt," that was a "new york times" headline. romney wanted a managed bankruptcy, but -- but, john, you say he has actually said these words. >> the obama campaign sent me a video over night of him saying it in 2011, well after the bailout happened. he actually spoke the words let detroit go bankrupt, actually quoting the headline from that. so they are trying to say the words came out of his mouth, albeit not before the bailout or not when he's advocating for it. >> the difference here is mitt romney did not want a direct injection of taxpayer funds into the companies as they were, right? >> that's exactly correct. >> in the end you didn't get a direct injection of taxpayer funds into the company, right, because the white house and the car czar was remaking these things through the bankruptcy. >> there was a bailout and managed bankrupts net end. >> so the final verdict. >> the final verdict on this one is that it is false, that it is false
administration. he says people will lose their job if obama is still in the white house. he's kind a character, actually. >> he seems like a little pressure to be saying that to his 7,000 employees. >> he says he won't fire them, but keep in mind that an obama presidency would be bad. >> he talked about the recession affecting his business and how he made it back. it is very detailed. >> christine romans, thank you very much. >>> when we come back, what not to wear at the airport. body armor for one. and that is just the start of what one man had with him when trying to board a flight. we have the full story coming up. e gether, and these come together, one thing you can depend on is that these will come together. delicious and wholesome. some combinations were just meant to be. tomato soup from campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. tomato soup from campbell's. online outfit piccolo headphones buy now broadway show megapixels place to sleep little roadster war and peace deep sea diving ninja app hipster glasses 5% cash back sign up to get 5% everywhere online through december. only from d
in our nato partners and talk about the positive ways the obama administration handled libya and that biden should point out that paul ryan's most recent budget in the house called for reductions in spending to the state department and he said that could jeopardize u.s. security and that biden should point that out. >> we know that half of the debate is supposed to be on foreign policy, national security. the other half on domestic issues. right now they're introducing the wives of the candidates. soledad, tell our viewers what you're seeing. >> that's right. the commissioner has been really running through the program as they head up through the start of the debate. interesting difference between the two wives. very different women, of course. >> very different, primarily because we do see jill biden a lot out there with michelle obama, talking about military families. jan ryan has not done any interviews. believe me, we tried. and she wants to maintain a low profile. she's raising her three kids. she simply has the pedigree to be able to get out there and talk about politic
think the vice president will be pretty direct in his comments about what the obama administration's plans are. he's going to have a tough time debating the record. we saw that last week with governor romney and president obama. when it actually got to the record they struggled a little bit. vice president is a confident debater. we look at debates historically, the older, more senior person often has the upper hand. not always but often. >> you're looking at a decent age gap between the two men. do you think age plays a factor in this? >> i think so. now it's a situation, is it going to be more reaganesque or more john kennedy? if the younger guy is able to carry his own. i know paul ryan really well. he's a good friend of mine. this guy is smart and is experienced and he understands the numbers. >> congressman? >> he will do okay but will have his hands full. >> one of the things he's known for is specifics. and figures and data. one of the things that mitt romney hasn't been doing lately is filling in the data and giving specifics on his tax plan and budget plan. what kind of ch
the way the obama administration initially said it may have. this violence does not start with a span takenus protest over a now notorious saent islam film. let's get straight to some of the details now. jill dougherty joining us now from the u.s. state department. what are they expected to set straight? >> very interesting reading. some of these documents. there are statements coming out by the key people who will be testifying today. they -- i have been reading through them, and i think there were a couple of very important moments. that came essentially from the u.n. ambassador, susan rice, and in the testimony by ambassador patrick kennedy, which we expect to hear, he says that any official who was in -- was testifying at that particular time that she did, which was on the 16th five days later, the 16th of september, five days after the attack, would have said the very same thing. it was based on the information that was known at that particular moment. you are already setting up, you know, some would say that the administration lied. in fact, chairman isa said that the administra
, but at the same time the obama administration is facing a ton of criticism over libya from the romney-ryan ticket, and so he is also vulnerable and we'll be seeing how that pans out tonight. >> all right. briana keiller, thank you. appreciate it. >> watch the vice presidential debate. it is happening tonight right here on cnn, cnn.com. our coverage starting at 7:00 eastern. here's what we're working on for this hour. >> the perception battle. it had will happen the moment bide sxen ryan take the stage, and the age gap between the two will be front and center. >>> while their husbands take the stage, the wives will be sitting on the edge of their seats. we'll look at the lives of jenna ryan and jill biden. plus, she's moderating tonight's debate, but martha radditz is facing criticism for knowing president obama too well. he attended her wedding back in the 1990s. that's the power of human resources. the society... for human resource management and its members know... how to harness that power, because we help develop it. from the next economy, to the next generation, we help get... the most out o
and no rookie when it comes to face-offs with the obama administration. just a few moments ago he tweeted out a picture of himself on the debate stage here in danville, kentucky. i guess he was going through his walk through, you might say, at that point, wolf. and we are told by top aides to paul ryan that he expects to be called mr. ryan later on this evening. in one corner paul ryan in an ice cream shop on the campaign trail, mitt romney's running mate didn't exactly predict a rocky road in his first debate with joe biden. but he did give the vice president the edge. >> joe biden's been on this stage before. he's been on the big stanls. this is my first time. >> reporter: in the other corner a man who's been on this stage before. >> ever seen me rope-a-dope? >> reporter: but biden better have his gloves up. ryan will be looking to debate substance, the wyoming congressman will zero in on this widely received presidential gaffe earlier this month. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried for the last four years. >> reporter: the obama campaign is looking
't want to get in trouble from churches and get a democratic administration, say, with president obama in trouble with the clurhurches by threateg them. others don't have enough agents to enforce this law. it's unclear because the riirs so mum and when they penalize it's done privately, it's unclear about how much enforcement there really is. it's expected there's little, and exactly why the enforcement is so lax. it's a big, outstanding question. >> all right. dan gilgoff, a religion editor. thanks so much. >> thanks, fred. >> you can see more of this story on our belief blog at cnn.com/belief. >>> bees in france are making rather strange-colored honey because of a sweet tooth. beekeepers say the honeybees found m&m's residue that manufacturing candy waste. the result? green, blue, or red honey. it takes like regular honey but won't be sold in stores. >>> the presidential candidate are fighting to win the latino vote. we look at one state where latinos voters could decide this election. when you take a closer look... ...at the best schools in the world... ...you see they all have some
policy speech, republican presidential candidate mitt romney had this to say about the obama administrati administration's work in the middle east. take a listen. >> but it is our responsibility and the responsibility of the president to use america's greatest power to shape history, not to lead from behind, leaving our destiny at the mercy of events. unfortunately, that's exactly where we find ourselves in the middle east under president obama. >> but a fellow republican, senator rand paul, tells cnn that romney's approach is wrong, that more u.s. intervention in the mideast would not be effective, that our wars have fared poorly. in your opinion, what is the role of the u.s. in this region? >> first of all, we have to determine, is this region important to us? and the answer definitely is yes. because of our allies in the region from nato ally turkey which is under fire right now from syria to israel that's constantly being threatened to our gulf allies. secondly, energy. thirdly, this is the transportation and geographic hub of eurasia. fourthly, it's the cradle of civilizations in rel
this morning with priorities u.s.a. action, a superpac that supports president obama. also a former white house press secretary for the administration. hammering behind me, i apologize in case it drowns me out as we're talking. twitter was on fire where people would think absolutely, positively it was paul ryan who won or absolutely, positively it was joe biden who won. ultimately, though, this was about playing to the middle. when it comes to that realist realistically, who do you think had the advantage there? >> i think if you look at the polls, your poll said that that debate was tied. cbs said that vice president biden did remarkably better than congressman ryan did. but i think if you just look at the two -- if you look at the vice president, the vice presidential nominee on the republican side, the facts don't stack up for the republican side. and i think that joe biden did an excellent job of point iing t where the math didn't add up, where his inexperience on foreign policy showed ryan to be unprepared and a little off kilter. and i think that joe biden, overall, did a much better job
